My buddy had one, never got to ride it though.

Those helmets are frickin awesome.....ah the good old days.
Looks like the windows of an AMC Pacer.

I have a confession... my parents owned a Pacer.

I'm still embarrassed by that one.

My buddy in High School had the 750 version of that Kawi Triple. He would come by my house every morning and leave a 35 foot burnout on the street end to end in front of the house.

Man my dad was mad at that.

Hey Hey!!

That was GuyB confessing that not me......

We had the much more stylish Ford Falcon.
Remember these babies with the fold-down rear seats that faced out the back window?

Small world, we had a Falcon wagon also. Same color too, but the older one.

Nice stars and stripes pants on +1 to go with the funny expression. But what's the kid in the middle with head turned wearing? Leather pants with fringe?

I almost got a 750 with a redline frame and Aluminum tank, my buddy recieved some stuff from his Uncle that got shot to death. He gave it to an old friend of his uncles free, Wanye Parduchi, thinking he would appreciate it, the punk turned around and sold it to a Museum some where, it may have been Barber, not sure. I would have killed my self on it anyway.

We had the Ford Country Squire with the peeling paneling on the side and the rear facing back seat that we would sit in and make faces at the cars behind us. haha

I didn't know Indian made all those cars?

My first bike was a brand new 1973 Indian MX76. Still had it until about 4 year ago.

Remember when it was considered "cool" to wear loafers and no socks? Rode my buddy's triple and burned the holy hell out of my ankle on those pipes.

as a kid, i used to drool over the indians in the shop - never got one.

Bissell aimed his two-stroke missile toward the front and absconded with a sizable holeshot.
